quote: This is my take
What is it that attracts us to things?
: It is youself that is identifying with an NB aspect of yourself on some level or another. I am not referring to earlier memories as such, although these would be an indication of another similar encounter with yourself.
But I am suggesting that when you feel this primal attraction to something, it is an aspect of yourself
that you love and would like to become better aquainted with, or an aspect which you fear
, and you want to understand why.
